Jay Cooke State Park: The Oldenberg Cascades

Photobucket

Today Noelle, Parker, Mom and I headed out to Jay Cooke to do a little bit of hiking on this chilly spring day. I really wanted to hike the trail that heads down to the river from the Oldenberg Point overlook because we'd never checked it out before. And so we headed out on a muddy trail descending some steep stairs to the river.

Once at the river level we found a nice rock outcropping from which we relaxed and looked at the foaming, churning cascades.

After a while of checking out the scene at the river we went back up the steep stairs and hiked a wet, muddy loop trail. There were lots of flowers just about to bloom , but other than a few violets and bellworts, nothing was quite in bloom yet.
